What is Maker Faire?

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these "makers" to show hobbies, experiments, projects.

We call it the Greatest Show (& Tell) on Earth - a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity, and resourcefulness.

Glimpse the future and get inspired!

Los Angeles Central Library

Bigger and Better! DTLA Mini Maker Faire is BACK! Los Angeles is again joining a global network of Maker Faires spanning 35 countries for the second time. It will continue to follow the “big” Maker Faire model of celebrating invention, creativity, craftsmanship, science, and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) culture with more diverse representations of all of the kinds of making to be found in Los Angeles and beyond!

Proudly host by the Los Angeles Public Library, the DTLA Mini Maker Faire will take place at the gorgeous and historic Central Library in downtown Los Angeles (otherwise known as DTLA).

Follow the development of the DTLA Mini Maker Faire on the library’s Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts.

Maker Faire originated in 2006 in the San Francisco Bay Area as a project of the editors of Make: magazine.  It has since grown into a significant worldwide network of both flagship and independently-produced events.  Read more on Maker Faire history, the Maker Movement, as well as how to start a Maker Faire or a School Maker Faire where you live.
